AbstractPrayer is a universal practice that crosses vertical as well as horizontal boundaries. Prayer not only allows the faithful to interact with the divine, it enables connection to a global community of belief and believers. This session will investigate medieval prayer culture as it becomes visible in various devotional objects from this era, especially in manuscripts and prints in their broader historical and religious-theological context. Speakers are members of the network 'Late-Medieval and Early Modern Prayer Culture', which is dedicated to bringing scholars together to investigate prayer across national and disciplinary boundaries.
